Fix your Virtual Box after a Kernel Update

Hi guys,
     I installed virtualbox 3 in my new fedora leonidas. It works well for my default kernel.But after upgrading to newer kernel it doesnt work and shows some error message the the kernel modules are not installed and asked me to setup my virtualbox kernel.
 
                 It also hints me to run the following command to install the new virtualbox kernel.
                                         /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

                 But it doesnt solve my problem and gave the error that your kernel source not found in the /lib/modules/ folder.I am puzzled and went through google for almost half an hour.Then i fixed it ;-)..
  
                  Yep.Installing kernel-devel modules will fix this issue.
 
                  Command : yum install kernel-devel
 
 Cheers,
